Career Communications Group Inc. Partners with WB&B Executive Search in Executive Placement
By: Career Communications Group
WB&B continues to be recognized as the nation's leading minority-owned executive search firm. Established in 1973, its founding bylaws ensure an inclusive slate of qualified candidates for each client engagement. By partnering with WB&B, CCG hopes to grow the STEM workforce and enhance talent pipelines for industry, government, and others.
This partnership aims to streamline efforts of solving the disparity of women and minorities in executive positions on the national stage. Dr. Tyrone Taborn, CEO, and Publisher of CCG and Mr. Kenneth Roldan, CEO of WB&B Executive Search, both have long track records of being advocates for unrepresented communities in various spheres of the workforce. By working together, CCG and WB&B aim to make the recruiting landscape easier for corporations to find the highly sought-after talent they need. "This strategic alliance with CCG is the first step in what we hope is a long-lasting partnership with such a well-respected leader in STEM diversity," said Roldan, CEO at WB&B Executive Search.
This joint endeavor comes at a time where African Americans represent only 9% of STEM employees, and Hispanics comprise only 7% of all STEM employees. At the executive level, those numbers are even fewer. "Minority talent management is critical in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields," said Taborn, CEO, and Publisher of CCG. By working together, CCG and WB&B plan on collaborating and forming innovative strategies to increase diversity among executives within industry, government, and academia in order to ensure long-term equity amongst underrepresented communities.
